They call me "Goose"
Just curious as to what the average lifespan of a 4L60E in a '00 Ex Cab Shortbed Silvy with a 4.8L should be. I bought a truck like this last saturday and on Thursday the trans took a crap. The odometer says 78k on it but I'm 100% positive that the cluster was swapped since I CarFax'd the truck and it had regular mileage increases that were documented all the way up til Oct. 03 at which point the truck had 139k on it. I bought it off a friend who had it for a few months and had to put a fuel pump and catylitic converter on it during the time he had it. He bought it off of a Mexican guy who seemed way too eager to sell it but I didn't find out about any of these issues until after I bought it from my friend, and my friend had no idea of these issues either. I'm thinking the truck probably has around 200k on it since the tranny just went out, but I'd still like to find out about how long most people's trans's will go before they need rebuilding/replacing. I can get a trans from my work (a junkyard) with 102k on it so I think I'll probably go that route, unless the lifespan numbers are a lot closer to 102k than I think they will be. Thanks for any help!
